Catrin Finch (UK) & Seckou Keita (ML)
Support: Mundus Trio
The story of the duo Finch-Keita reads like a fairy tale. In 2012, Catrin Finch was planning to play several concerts with Malinese superstar Toumani Diabaté, but he had to withdraw due to the political situation in Mali. Seckou Keita replaced him at the very last moment. This was the beginning of the successful collaboration between the two musicians. After the wonderful debut album they presented at a sold-out Predikherenkerk church in 2016, there is now the worthy follow-up 'Soar'. Welsh musical traditions and West African rhythms go together perfectly. The marriage between the harp and the kora as well as the combination of their musical cultures works wonderfully well and creates a story of unity and togetherness.
